King had a hell of a time in 2020 before he went down with an ACL injury in the last matchup of the season. He was slicing and dicing up defenses left and right.

Then, he got hurt against Oklahoma State, and Miami fans collectively held their breath wondering how he’d recover.

Well, he’s back and it sounds like things are going very well. When King is at his best, he’s one of the most dominant quarterbacks in college football.

Now, it sounds like he’s going to remind people of that fact starting week one against Alabama.

Miami fans should be very happy with Diaz’s assessment of the situation!
